I just wanted to offer my website address and services to anyone
that wants custom made furniture, made as ordered .

Yup. Pinpoint marketing. Selling custom-made furniture to people who
custom-make furniture as a hobby or business.
Is that like the fish merchant who sells to luckless fishermen?

Thanks, but that is what a lot of us do.
May I make a suggestion? Move your web page to a real host for business.
Nothing is more irritating that pop ups from Geocities from a commercial
enterprise web page. Very amateurish.
how much teak do you have left ? Whats the going rate ? Would you be
willing to help arrange shipping ?
BTW tried going direct, but your email addy bounced back -- my email
I went down to Costa Rica, picked the trees, watched them being cut and
sawn, loaded them on a container (brutal work) and shipped them up to
I am in Texas, but we are not in the wood business any more and I have
2,000 BF stickered that I need to get rid of, and will do it in 50-100
BF lots if necessary, mostly ground shipping UPS.
The wood is from 30 year old trees and varies wildly in colour, with
white wood inclusions.

Seriously though, it doesn't take long to realize there's a lot of knowledge
and craftsmanship on this group. A lot of know how and expertise in how to
put projects together. Much discussion on what type of tools to use and
assembly techniques. Very little talk, however, of aesthetics and other
design considerations, and yet these considerations are of far greater
significance in the end product than the brand of glue, type of clamp, or

Since you seem to appreciate candor, I'll be as candid as you were. I have
to question your artistic eye if you refer to this fellow's work as butt
ugly. It's not the type of furnature I'd build to put in my home, but there
is certainly nothing butt ugly about it at all. Your profession has nothing
at all to do with being an informed professional opinion. An informed
professional opinion would consider tastes outside of your own. Yours has
every appearance of being a snobish, rather myopic opinion.
I don't think any discusssion on asthetics would be terribly fruitful -
believe it or not there are people who think they understand what everyone
else should appreciate better then the eye of the beholder.
